News from the 1960's
I usually share these via torrent but I don't think all these files are available on archive.org so here's a 1960's news file dump. Plus some talk shows and specials.
Any typo or error is mine.

Clearing Audio File Rights for TV SERIES?
I am working on a new documentary tv series about the 1950's and 1960's for the Discovery Network and trying to figure out the rights situation for the radio broadcasts under the WW11 Archive:
I am not interested in the music -just the news portions so we can provide an authentic background sound in various scenes.
Specifically, I want to inquire about WKNR Detroit – Keener 13 (which is now Fresh 100 and owned by Clear Channel).
The WKNR links are on the right side of the screen on RadioNews and I am interested in #37 -#40; #44; #45; #52; #70; #82.
WKNR has been dark for years. The new station owner has no jurisdiction over WKNR. So I believe the news portion might be public domain.
Would anybody be able to help me clarify this?
Thanks for your time and consideration!

from age 10 through 14 i would record with mics, later patch cords onto 7 inch reels
i had space shots, top 100 of the year hits, etc.
as i grew up i discarded the hobby and switched formats.
this collection is incredible and could be a college course in history
i'm glad someone saved this stuff

Wow! Thanks a million!
What no-one posted a comment! I will be delighted to be the first then.
I JUST found this room by chance surfing Google even though I list to Archives show quite often.
Am just now listening to a 1960 Shepard after Dwight Weise's weather forecast of puffy clouds over Times Square! :) And I briefly heard a Monitor January 1960s show.
The rest of this has to be priceless. Thanks to the person who posted all this.
